vacation plans hatched

 

follow
hot pavement
highway 26 winding
thru Hatch, New Mexico,
small, world famous,
village heats up
every Labor Day
weekend for
Chile Festival
greenest valley
of state grows
best peppers,
pecans, cotton.
also home of
Sparky’s
green chile
cheese
burger
you’ll
wanna
drive
in

a garden lai

This is my attempt at a “lai”.  You can learn more about the form at dVerse

 

look out my window
garden plants on row
i see

green beans, potato,
snap peas, tomato
must weed

good seeds that we sow
cause blessings to grow
freely

Magnetic “storm” quadrille, linking to De’s prompt at dVerse Poets.

attitude of gratitude

Weekend writing challenge on “gratitude” with Sammi Cox   

For undulations of the hills
for desert, daisies, daffodils
for love’s sweet longing family fills
God give us grateful hearts.

For grass to grow, mow everywhere
for pizza, pickles, peach and pear
for every breath we breathe of air
God give us grateful hearts.

For hiking, biking mountain steep
for swimming, surfing oceans deep
for every day our lives you keep
God give us grateful hearts.

For puppies, kittens, goldfish, frogs
for horses, cows, and baconed hogs
for reading books and writing blogs
God give us grateful hearts.

ocean breaks in waves

seagull sentinels keep watch

foam washes up crab

grieve a breeze

“Time Travel: Ancient Japanese Poetry” with Chèvre at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

 

Even a breeze may fail me

When I desire it.

Little I should grieve,

If only, sure of its coming,

I could await even a breeze.

waka by Princess Kagami (7th century)

 

extreme summer

wrung out from humidity

even breeze feels hot

in the light of dawn
sunflowers reach to the blue sky
praising their Creator

© Chèvrefeuille

upturned faces in worship
joyfully follow the light
